Recently Glen and John flew his Seabee for the first time after restoration. Congratulations! It is now going to be taken apart and have the 'Robinson' conversion done along with some other interior changes. Way to go John and Glen!
Update!: Glen Alton and John Galloway have put in about 800 hours into the transformation of their Seabee into a Robinson Seabee. They figure another 1000 hours or so. Keep up the good work guys!

"It flew last in 1974 and the engine (FranK!) Blew up (no joke!) and it force landed in a swamp in town here. Joe McHugh had rescued it from Juneau AK, and took it to Seattle where he painted it. Then sold to a fellow in AK ( I am friends with his son, too!) and flown to AK where upon arrival here in town the engine blew up. McHugh had told the new owner to replace the FranK! right away but he tried to at least fly it home. When I got it it still had fuel and mud from 1974 !!! (No Joke!)
...Anyway, I been working on it a lot and hope to fly it this summer (been said by many!)"

I just bought Seabee projects s/n 537 (N6314K) and s/n 906 (parts plane) from Robert McCarthy of Texas (08-05-2018). I plan on doing a full restoration of 14k along with several Mods. The least of which will be a turbine engine conversion (Allison 250 380hp) and also retractable sponsons along with a conversion to tricycle gear (fully enclosed) and STOL leading edge cuffs on the wing and multiple fairings. I know I know I sound like a nut!! Lol. But I've been engineering and designing these changes for 13 years and am an A&P, have build 6 homebuilts (most award winners at Oshkosh and Sun&Fun). I'm finishing up a 170B Restoration and will start in Ernest on the Bee right after.

I guess we need to update my member info for N6255K (462) now that it has been flying for over a year. Take your pick of the photos. Also, many more can be seen at www.bob.thegoulds.org. If you prefer, you can use any of those you like.
I have about 65 hours on it now, and it is running great. Dealing with corrosion is a constant task; washdown after every flight, lots of ACF50, and paint touchups on a regular basis. Bob

As a Republic owner I have proudly owned SN 280, N6097K since I believe 1972 and have flown it for years. I flew for many years to and during Oshkosh air show and have seen some notoriety as the Republic kit under the Mach 2 name made in France has my N number as the American, have three flying bee's on the field (SN: 603, 285, 693 and mine 280), mine temporarily not included, after 25 years mostly stored outside she needs a good going through and will be hanger for the rest of my ownership which should be 30-40 years. I am owner/operator of the Cindy Guntly Memorial Airport in Wisconsin.
